14.6% Pay Uplift Over 28 Months
A resolution to the teacher pay dispute is now in sight after the EIS and SSTA unions voted to accept a historic sixth offer.
Teachers across Scotland have been offered the largest pay package in over twenty years, with most teachers set to see their salaries rise by £5,200 in April. The EIS said 90% voted for the deal, from a ballot turnout of 82%.
The 28-month deal has a cumulative value of 14.6%, and means an overall increase of more than £6,100 for the 70% of classroom teachers who are at the top of their main grade pay scale.
It amounts to a cumulative rise of 33% for most teachers since January 2018, and will bring the starting salary for a fully qualified teacher – already the highest in the UK – to £38,650 after probation by January 2024.
The revised offer, agreed by the Scottish Government and COSLA, was:
- 1 April 2022 to 31 March 2023 – a 7% uplift for all grades up to a ceiling of £80,000, where a cap of £5,600 (pro-rata) will apply
- 1 April 2023 to 31 December 2023 – a 5% uplift for all grades up to a ceiling of £80,000, where a cap of £4,000 (pro-rata) will apply
- 1 January 2024 to 31 July 2024 – a 2% uplift for all grades up to a ceiling of £80,000, where a cap of £1,600 (pro-rata) will apply
Cumulatively, these amount to an uplift of 12.4% by April 2023 and 14.6% from 1 January 2024.
